|For me, competent means very few or no mistakes, e.g. a 4-bar phrase may have one careless mistake. If a performance is of questionable quality, you will perform that level again later in the semester to earn full credit.|
|If you have demonstrated competence with all of the rhythms listed above, you may perform Memorized Singing I, Reciting Rhythms and Conducting I, Sight Singing I, or begin 2-handed Tapping II.|
|Why tap with 2 hands? To improve sight reading and ambidexterity. (Think percussion and piano.)|
